Thoughts and feelings beyond the Indian Bengali cosmos. Since then, Shuvaprasanna, Shipra and their paintings have kept alive myinterest in India, its traditions and millennia-old culture, the alternative paths of its people to attain truth and fulfilment. Another friend and collector of his works is the Munich-based Dr Josef Zenthbauer.

As the years went by, all of these were clearly bound to recede into some quiet niches of the mind, the fine layer of the dust of time, of other concerns and thoughts, coming to settle over them. But when the moment arrived to invoke, recall, summon those sights and sounds, Shuva seems to have turned them into images that are all his own.
